            Good hotel in a good location. Food is very good. The rooms can use a bit of work, esp the bathrooms need a touch-up and carpet needs to be changed. However I would stay here again as the place has class and service is good.

            It is definitely not a 5 * property, at most 3 *. Hotel old, rotten door, mold in the bathroom, smell on the corridors. Small dining room, no sitting place in the morning, slow staff. The hotel was a great disappointment for me.

            I highly recommend Khin. He did out of his service after knowing we are they for a stay with our family of 8 by waiting for us to be back to check if we have any requests for extra drinks/refreshments in the club lounge. The housekeeping staffs are also very friendly and accomodating to our requests.

            i just love our stay there. The area is just located within the city proper, a walking distNce from spas and restaurants, the breakfast is absolutely delicious, the room is clean. The only bad comment i can say is their internet connection. We were not informed that the complimentary wifi is limited for the number of devices. and the toilet flush is not working very well. Otherwise, thumbs up for their other services.

            when we arrived we were upgraded to a deluxe twin room, rather than the queen bed we had requested. They mention that a room with a 'big' bed may be available later on. This turned out to be an upgrade to their 'business' suite on the same floor. The upgrade was unexpected, being a great way to start our trip in Nepal. The reception staff were helpful with all our enquiries.

            Disappointed and overpriced”

            Had been looking forward to visit this hotel for years. Found it overpriced and run down for cost. No free wifi and breakfast not included. Rooms were very hot and staff not able to cool them down due to limitations in environmental control systems. Sadly will not visit again.

            They charged me for the usage of hotel room WiFi, they finally agreed to waive the charges after my long argument with the Manager. It is not acceptable to charge guess for WiFi access at a 5 Stars hotel, even coffee shop by the roadside offers free WiFi for their customers. Anyway, the hotel is good and the peoples are nice, I will not stay in this hotel again unless there is free WiFi access I will be visiting Kathmandu again in March 2018, my company will be hosting a 2 days International conference there. May consider another hotel

            First trip to Nepal, so after the Visa On Arrival, extended time, lack of understanding on my part, get your bags, then locate the Hotel Staff waiting across the street in the dark, we headed to hotel. Not a long journey, however dark and streets not busy. Surprise I got a room upgrade, from Heritage Deluxe to Jr Suite, Thanks!! Room was fabulous, large a well appointed. Only issue, some moldy smell, amplified when you opened the closet, behind toilet side of bathroom.. Ordered room service, burger was very tasty, hot and delivered quickly. Breakfast was good reasonable selection of items. Had dinner 2 nights buffet or from menu provides good choices. Location not too isolated, near King's Way, short walk 8 minutes to Palace, 15 minutes to Thamel. Would have been nice to have ATM, on hotel grounds. Something about arriving late, poor street lighting, looking for money in strange place. Near midnight most staff goes home, and the the lobby area lighting gets reduced.

            The hotel is a well run, establishment with a host of professional and attentive staff - nothing is too much trouble and all you have to do is ask - do enquire about an upgrade or book a shangrila club room , which has access to the club room facilities and the personal attention, of I’m sure the hotels, most valued staff . Headed by Bhakta , who took service delivery to the next level - we would highly recommend the upgrade and the chance to experience the hotels complimentary snacks cocktails & a range of drinks from cold remidies to gin & tonics , together with the warm welcome of Bhakta
